Waste heat recovery

A conservation system that utilizes byproduct heat that would otherwise be lost to assist in heating water or a conditioned space. As an example, by utilizing specialized hardware, the waste heat from showering and washing dishes or clothes can be recovered and used to preheat water before it enters a water heating appliance.
